[HONG KONG] Hong Kong stocks rose in the first few minutes of trade Thursday after tumbling in the previous two days but investors moved cautiously as they try to assess the long-term fall-out from Britain's decision to leave the EU.

The Hang Seng Index rose 0.54 per cent, or 111.39 points, to 20,606.68.

But the benchmark Shanghai Composite Index eased 0.26 per cent, or 7.94 points, to 3,009.35 and the Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China's second exchange, edged down 0.10 per cent, or 1.95 points, to 2,013.22.
